Had this idea for a long time. I have spent the last three weeks on this but I still have a lot to do. Building is from Builders in Scale and the hand made trees are kits I bought from Coastman Trees.

Great work. The wood looks good, but you shouldn't have hired Jim's company carpenter to put in that 2nd step for you. (HOexplorer, Building the Pinnacle Creek Mining & Timber Co. RR)

I purchased the Woodland scenic boulders and will be setting them in plaster. I found a steel cable set from Roco/Herpa models that will be used for the mine shaft cable.
